SymSitive® 1609 from Symrise received the PCHi award at the 2011 Personal Care and Homecare Ingredients (PCHi) trade show. The award honors the soothing properties of the cosmetic ingredient and its contribution for consumers on the Chinese market.
For the first time, PCHi organized a special award ceremony to venerate new technologies from exhibitors on the Chinese personal care and cosmetics market. Symrise could convince a jury of experts from respected Chinese industry associations, universities and research institutes. It awarded SymSitive® 1609 for its highly efficacious skin soothing properties.
Besides SymSitive® 1609, the local Symrise team from China as well as Asia Pacific presented several other ingredients at the PCHi trade show: Substances such as SymWhite® 377, SymCalmin®, SymDiol®, SymPeptide® 226EL and SymFinity® 1298 address major issues connected to skin whitening, anti-aging, sun protection products and preservative-free formulations. Chung Sin Wong, Vice President Symrise Life Essentials Asia Pacific, explains: “These topics will continue to be the trend in the cosmetics and toiletries industry in China. This is the feedback we received from interested customers and visitors here. The award proves clearly that we understand the demands of local customers. For this reason, we feel particularly delighted to have achieved the prize. It enforces our efforts to continually develop ingredients that offer exactly the products Chinese consumers expect.”
